The Charmers\' Psalter

The Psalms, mysterious in origin and possibly pre-dating Judeo-Christian scripture, play a critical role in classic grimoires and folk-magic traditions. This book explores the Psalms in healing, protection, cursing, averting evil, and engaging spirits with magical acts of bottling, burning, utterance, inscription, and more. Serving a vast array of needs, this book offers a unique approach to engaging with the world of spirit.
